    Kayleigh Milne, Business Advisory Assistant in our Inverurie office, has been awarded the joint highest mark worldwide in her ACCA exam.

    The Business Analysis exam, part of the ACCA Professional qualification, was taken by over 14,000 students across the globe. 

    Kayleigh, who works within our Business Advisory team said: “I put a lot of pressure on myself and get very stressed out around exam time. I consider myself extremely lucky as Johnston Carmichael are very supportive of my studying. They give me ample study leave before my exams which is vital to helping me pass as it gives me the time to fully focus my attention on studying and gives me a break from juggling work and study right before the exam.”

    Craig Vickery, head of ACCA Scotland, said “This is truly an outstanding mark that deserves recognition. Kayleigh’s fantastic accomplishment in achieving the highest score for the P3 Business Analysis exam showcases the outstanding ability of ACCA students here in Scotland. Congratulations Kayleigh.”

    Kayleigh’s score of 92 was the highest mark out of 14,515 candidates who sat the P3 exam in June and Kayleigh was awarded a cash prize and certificate to celebrate the achievement.

    Iain Abernethy, Head of Learning and Development at Johnston Carmichael said 

    The staff and partners here are extremely proud of Kayleigh. She has sustained a very high standard of exam pass throughout her studies, however this result is truly an outstanding achievement. Kayleigh has a tremendous attitude to her work and studies, is a real pleasure to work with and undoubtedly has a very bright future ahead of her.
